Description

Sepsis and septic shock remain common causes of morbidity and mortality in children. This session will discuss how they investigated the use of electronic health record data to proactively identify potentially septic children. The approach used to define the early-detection pediatric sepsis (PS) algorithm was to combine the logical structure of a successful adult sepsis algorithm with clinical criteria consistent with the PS consensus definition of Goldstein et al. Multiple algorithm variations were retrospectively tested against a clinically-validated gold standard, and the one with the best overall performance under the constraint of early detection was implemented.

Dr. Eisenberg is a graduate of Yale College and Harvard Medical School. He completed his residency, chief residency and emergency medicine fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital, where he is currently an attending physician in the division of emergency medicine and an instructor in the departments of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Eisenberg’s early research focused on concussion and head injury in children. After completing a fellowship in quality improvement in 2014, he has been leading major initiatives in the division and the hospital around improving safety of critical care procedures, expediting care for immunocompromised patients, and improving recognition and treatment of pediatric sepsis. Dr. Eisenberg is an active participant in the national Improving Pediatric Sepsis Outcomes collaborative as a member of the Boston Children’s Hospital steering committee for this effort and the physician leader for the division of emergency medicine.

Dr. Kate Madden graduated from Brown University and Washington University Medical School at Saint Louis. She completed pediatrics residency, chief residency and pediatric critical care fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital. She is currently an attending physician in the division of critical care, and an Instructor in the department of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Madden has studied various areas of clinical research, including, vitamin D deficiency in critically ill children and it’s association with severity of illness and sepsis, delirium and sedation in pediatric critical illness. After completing a research fellowship at Harvard Medical School in 2012 with a Master’s of Medical Science, she has been leading quality improvement initiatives in the division, specifically in the area of sepsis, as well as conducting clinical research projects. Dr. Madden is an active participant in the national Improving Pediatric Sepsis Outcomes collaborative (Children’s Hospital Association) as a member of the Boston Children’s Hospital steering committee, and the physician leader for the division of critical care.
